Jeraldo H., Student June 25, 2020 By wpengine My favorite subject is science because we learn about the human body and it helps me understand my body. I want to be a scientist or maybe work in the medical field like my dad. Can you talk a little bit about your favorite subject?

You won a basketball scholarship to go to a camp in Alabama. Can you talk about that? Jeraldo: I decided that I wanted to go to the basketball camp in Alabama after I spoke to my mom about wanting to play wheelchair basketball in college. I wrote an essay, submitted my report, received two letters of recommendation then submitted my scholarship request package to ABC Medical. I was already selected for camp but the scholarship covered the costs. Mary Schlesinger (learning coach): He plays for the Fairfax Falcons on their wheelchair basketball team. What do you like about Friendship online? What has the experience been like for you? Mary: It has been great. It’s very flexible. If students have an appointment with a doctor or need to travel, they won’t miss school. They can easily make up assignments on the go. We are a Marine Corps family so the program’s flexibility is great for us. I’m Jeraldo’s learning coach. I used to be a public school teacher when his mother was his age. Transitioning to Friendship Online was a little challenging in the beginning. A few things were different from when I taught, but we quickly got into the swing of things. There’s a lot of support from teachers and staff at Friendship. That made the transition much easier for us.
